One of the many wonderful explosions.
So here we are. The PSP launch will occur in Europe and Australia on September 1st and Sony Europe is finishing off this launch title, Fired Up, which has more then a passing resemblance to Sony Europe's own Hardware Online Arena which launched the PS2's online services in the the same territory.

So this game is an action title with a wide variety of vehicles available to tear around the levels in, but it also has a bit of a storyline...

Texturing looks superb.
In an anarchic world of high-octane vehicles, big guns and bigger explosions, is a rag tag team of resistance fighters are about to strike back against a faceless aggressor. They’re desperate for your help; but if being a collaborator in the rebellion isn’t your thing, you can always go it alone, blow up your friends and experience genuine mayhem in multiplayer mode. So buckle in, prime the weapons and hit the gas. What’s it to be? Smash and grab or crash and burn?
